Members of the Cyclone Gridiron Club proclaim their love of ISU athletics through altruistic sponsorship of the school's football program and engaging outings for like-minded fans. In addition to entrance to all general club meetings and functions, Point After members can participate in a bevy of exclusive functions, including members-only golf outings, closed scrimmages and practices, and semi-formal touchdown dances. Chartered buses will ferry Cyclone faithful to each 2012 away game, and weekly picnics and tailgating parties will rev up fan spirit before contests. Meet-and-greets with coaches give patrons opportunities to mingle with staffers and contribute strategy suggestions, such as recruiting techniques to attract players from Krypton. Cyclone Gridiron Club takes pride in having raised more than $1 million for team expenses such as locker-room renovations and updated weight-room equipment not included in the university Athletic Department's annual budget.
